This activity includes 150 liberal or political bumper sticker slogans and asks students to choose as to whether it each was most likely to have been placed on a car by a liberal or a conservative. The first worksheet includes 25 bumper sticker slogans you can do together with students and discuss why each slogan is more conservative or more liberal. The other two worksheets include one of 50 slogans and another of 75 slogans students can do independently or in groups. Answer keys are included for all three worksheets. There are 75 liberal slogans and 75 conservative slogans.
Issues include gun control, death penalty, government health care, environmental regulation and global warming, immigration, gay rights, the size of government, religion, capitalism and socialism, and others.
Your students will also get a brief description of the broad philosophical differences between liberals and conservatives as well as more concrete descriptions of where the two groups stand on specific issues. Students can use this description while completing the worksheets.
Use to teach the political spectrum by itself or use as a great supplement to your own unit on the political spectrum. Your students might also benefit from my entire unit on the political spectrum in my store at:
